Summary: Once again people on CNET giving ratings when they probably haven't even listen to the headphones. Well, I actually own a pair of the TB X500's (picked up for $170 on Catch Of The Day). These are brilliant sounding headphones for the money. Why anyone would give them a 1 rating is just plain stupid. They are comfortable for hours on end, great build quality, awesome Bass repro, excellent mic and very versatile with just about every game system known.
Summary: Bought these for my 16 year old son for Christmas. He was delighted - as am I! When he's on the XBox now I don't have to put up with the sound of bullets whizzing past my head - it's heaven. He tells me they are very comfortable and they seem to be very well made. Battery life seems very good - he's only just changed the two AA batteries after approximately 5 weeks. Highly recommended.
Summary: Excellent sound. However wireless chat does not work with all Microsoft Xbox contollers. We have ten microsoft controllers in our house and wireless chat only works with the older white one. Need to purchase cable to use chat feature. Contacted Turtle Beach and their support line is great, they sent another XBA but still does not work with newer controllers.
"Worst headset I've ever purchased. Worse than the $20 pair I bought once when I was too broke for a good pair."

Summary: I have the PX5 which is the exact same headset minus the Xbox adapter, and coloured red instead of green. The sound is awfully tinny and the screeching highs were literally painful to listen to at times. Then there's the terrible signal quality. I would constantly hear various hums, buzzes, crackles and pops. The base transmitter was always within a metre of where I sit with direct line of sight to the headset.
Summary: Hade massvis problem med dessa. Min tanke var att kunna använda dem på PC (Battlefield 3) samt vid spelande av Xbox 360 spel (och ibland PS3-spel) när man behöver vara något tystare vid sena kvällar. Detta funkade inte speciellt bra. Konstant brus får du räkna med att du har när du lyssnar, att prata i t ex. Gears of War 3 fungerade inte alls, eller snarare riktigt dåligt då min röst - när den hördes - var helt krackelerad och oigenkännelig.
